Volume 5 is presented during a time when it's so hot at TSB headquarters that we can barely move, except to scurry over to the refrigerator to get another beer. It's with that in mind that we bring the latest in our ever expanding compilation series, unearthing new talent and providing exclusive tracks before they hit the streets. The Summer edition is particularly enticing, containing more unreleased material than we know what to do with.
So sit back, pop a cold one, and enjoy the sounds of the newest compilation, courtesy of all the fine artists and labels involved in the project. Don't hesitate to empty your wallets buying them new cars, just be sure to save enough to keep your fridge well stocked.

some very beautiful music, with a few misplaced tracks
dont be put off by the first few tracks in this compilation-- this collection actually contains some very beautiful, contemplative post-rock with quiet guitars, strings, and occasionally, hushed vocals. stand out bands include This is a Process of Still Life, immanu el, City of a Hundred Spires, and Red Light Chamber Choir. in my opinion, the heavy, distorted sounds of the first few tracks and the last track dont fit in with the rest of the selections. fans of thoughtfully composed, emotional, slowly building post-rock should take note.
